Could ya hold off on more pics for a little while, Keith? There is a 145 for sale close to me cheap, and I'm really trying my best to hold off.

Nah, go ahead. I'm loaded with willpower.......


That's why I bought that 145 I have, because of Kenny and Skyrydyr2's pictures of their beautiful Fords.

2 bills later and this is what we have! Hooks up like a total dream! Just pin and go :)
The tiller needs some bearings and staighting of the tin, but all in all its ok.

Going to use the factory lift I think as it is hairy the way I had it, even though that is not what i would use, might try some clevys and chain so it can be adjusted pretty easy.
I was worried that top link would not fit easily without an adapter, but it fits like a glove . I now need to finish that tractor so i can play in the dirt, got some corn rows to till and hill:)

You too could have a hitch exactly like that!
Between the pea picking, broccolli picking amd weeding , I eas able to do a little work on the 125.
Got the decals on the hood stripped, (what a pain) and started on the fiberglass grill, going to reinforce it a bit more and lay it up better at the stress point on the bottom. I fixed it a few years back and it was all cracked again! Dang it! More delays. Also need to replace the lower tiller bearings, as one side is shot.

Keith, a question on the tiller. Who made it? It looks very similar to the tiller for my '72 Homelite, minus the right angle gearbox.

Well , got me another bag of sand , extra fine this time, and going to finish stripping the fender pan and hood, and see if I can get a nice texture to the back side of the fiberglass nose so I can get the resin to bond . I HATE FIBERGLASS ! So damned smelly and messy, not to mention itchy and loves to give off slivers! Photos later tonight of the mess I'm getting into ;)
